Don’t Hold Back


Don’t hold back because you’re scared of the unknown. Making any kind of change in your life is risky, but it is preferable to the alternative. You don’t want to be stuck in a rut, unhappy and unfulfilled. You don’t want to stay in your comfort zone for too long when it’s becoming increasingly uncomfortable by the day. You don’t want to limit your potential because you’re afraid to take a chance on yourself.

Don’t hold yourself back because you believe you don’t deserve success. You must stop listening to that nasty voice in your head. You must stop treating yourself as if you have no value. You are important. And you’re going to make a name for yourself. You must abandon your pessimistic, self-deprecating attitude in favour of an optimistic, self-respecting one. You need to start speaking to yourself more gently. You must begin to believe that you are deserving of the world.

Don’t hold yourself back because making the effort to change your life seems too difficult. You don’t have to make drastic changes right away. You don’t have to quit your job and buy a plane ticket on the spur of the moment. You can begin slowly. You have the ability to change your habits. You are willing to take chances. You can decide whether you are worth the effort, time, and attention. You can take a step forward after spending so much time holding yourself back.
